Looking back at August.

Looking back at August….August was a rather quite month..Temps did average out to be near normal though it was slighty below…. There was a total of 9 thunderstorm days and 1 severe thunderstorm day..We will break that down even more latter…. Looking at watches that were issued for the area…. Tornado watches = 0 Severe thunderstorm watches = 2.

There were 0 tornado warnings issued… There was 4 severe thunderstorm warnings issued.

Ok time to break the thunderstorm days down…

Days that had thunderstorms….

1, 2, 5, 13, 19, 20, 22, 26, 31….

Days that had severe thunderstorms


8 non severe thunderstorm days were recorded.

1 severe thunderstorm day was recorded.

9 total thunderstorm days were recorded…..

Two severe thunderstorm watches were issued, both for the 2nd… One was from 2:20 AM through 10:00 AM, the other one was for 5:20 AM to 1:00 PM once this one was issued the other watch became voided.

There was 4 severe thunderstorm warnings issued for the 2nd.

1. 4:30 AM to 5:30 AM

2. 5:25 AM to 6:30 AM

3. 9:10 AM to 10:15 AM

4. 9:37 AM to 11:15 AM

Let’s look at how the thunderstorm days stacked up to last year.

Last year we had 7 thunderstorm days for a total…. 3 were non severe while 4 were severe thunderstorm days.

So we did drop in the severe thunderstorm days compared to last year…We did go up on non severe thunderstorm days…

So all in all we are close to what we should be at……
